      Hello uberchilly,

      Welcome to the English NL Hand Evaluation Forum! Hopefully we will see more hands from you in the future. I hope that with our help you can improve your play and as well move up the limits. We will be waiting for the next hands and till that good luck on tables!

      Moved your hand to correct section. :)

      About your hand as by default you should be raising rather 4bb on those limits. And otherwise rather fold the turn cause you don't have the implied odds there to Call, nor of course you ain't going to be that often ahead. You just beat bluff there.

      Best Regards.

      Tnx for the reply. A lot of players on william hill on this blind level are short stacks, so I play, 3.5x or 3x preflop raise to 6c or 7c because I try to play aggressive in the late positions and steal a lot and they tend to fold easily on those raise sizes, as on 4x. And when you get called, and want to cbet on good flops bet sizes are a little bit smaller, so if they ship with small stacks, a lose less money. And on the particular hand. Should I have reraised flop and folded to another raise instead of just calling? I mean a lot of cards that are going to be turn cards are scary for me...
